wholesale merchants of that city were
losing their large and profitable busi

- that they were losing money. In coni- 13C

e The owners of th-ese boats demanded a
e bonus of $500 a week, and went to the
h bank because the merchants refused
, to pay it. t. Ca. Cunmmins went be
Sfore them and offered to place a boat

-and tlguaranteed him Ithat they woul M
e not only support his boat, but wotull
t br'lp him in every way possible. Now
we learn that somne of these very mer
chanis who gave all kirils of promistes
whien they were in the kinks, are not
acting fair with Captain Cumtnimu and

should, which is very wrong. lie'

When You Have It.
If you're sore,
To the core.
With aching bones,
And husky tones
When you speak,
And you're weak
In the knees,
And often cough
Your head near off,
And you note
That your throat
Feels quite raw,
And your jaw
Feels as if
You'd got a biff,
And dull pains
Vex your brains,
Then you've caught it,
You've got it-
You leave got it
It's the grip.
If you feel
The heat steal
O'er your frame
Like a flame
'Till you burn
And you yearn
For chunks of ice,
At any price.
Then like a flassh
The shivers la:sh
From head to feet,
A chill complete,
And you shake,
And you quake.
And there's desire
For a tire,
And something hot
Right on the spot
To quickly drink,
Right here and then
You'll never be warm again,
Then you have caught it,
You have caught it
It's the grip.
It's in the air
The microbe of the grip
Is on another trip,
And up and down,
'I'hrough all the town,
By night and day,
It seeks its prey,
And it's the fad d
If you are sad,
Or even mad,
Or if you sneeze,
Or cough or wheeze,
Or feel too warm,
Or chills alarm,
To wear a look of grim dismay
And hoarsely say:
"'I've caught it,
I've cuot it
It's the grip:"'
